Thread: Arthe's Fresh Start - SB
January 23rd, 2009 #27And yes, I should really try to read more about the programs - especially Painter ( which I am more comfortable with in general, and as such it will probably be my program of choice - Photoshop could be nice for finishing touches or effects, but they're not very important to me at this stage ). Any tips regarding where to start, though? Any good blogs or sites out there, outside of CGtalk?
those are all different programs, but I think many of the theories (green underpainting for example) and ideas how to approach a painting are helpful and don't depend on the program
otherwise there's still the painter section of conceptart:
also: kickass new update, your values are so good

Thanks again, Kiera. I'll definetely check those links out! Whatever the case, and no matter how long it takes, I'm determined to become a better digital painter. I do realize - even now - how convenient and great Painter ( for example ) is for experimenting ( with colours, et al ) once one has the basics down. It's a long road for me, but... You know.. One step at a time.

haha, I make sure to check your sketchbook from time to time to see how you progress.. all these things need time but I'm sure you made a good choice with focusing on painter
(I choose photoshop as my first program to learn and now some years later I know a lot about it and I can do all the moves without even thinking.. but after I got used to some easier programs with better brush engines I don't use PS for painting or sketching)

Sure, I'll do the same to yours, Kiera. Here's a WIP of Padme - I started with the approach you recommended. First the background color ( black ), then the whole background-color for the face in one batch ( white ), then I slowly started to fill in. Its a much more convenient way to work, at least - although this is my first attempt, so I'm not in any way efficient with it yet... x)

Wow! it is amazing how much you have improved over your first sketchbook page already. Your Padme wip is looking great, though is looking very soft around the edges - how do you plan to refine the outline? Will you have sharp edges or let it gently fade out? I think sharp edges would look best
I'll keep checking to see the finished piece.
Great sketchbook btw!

yep, black background helped a lot, this one looks very good (and again, very recognizable)

Good job with you latest post. The black background really brings the figure out. You did a good job of drawing the figure just work on the painting ^_^

Man, I'm sorry for not updating in a while... As it turned out, I got super-busy with my theater-projects ( I am an actor by profession ), and that kind of sucked all of my creative energy for a while. I took the pen in hand earlier today for the first time in weeks, and drew a few quick portraits, and then this digi-piece ( which took about 20 mins ).
Sadly the Padme still remains unrefined. Maybe I'll return to it someday.

very very sweet update and a surprsing new style, I like how you evolved with painting (just compare this to the girl with the cyborg hand on page 1 )
